The Philosophy of Whisky
Our freight rates are calculated, depending on the size of the item/s you have in your order. The rates apply for the largest item in your order.
For Example: If you make the purchase of 3x beanies and 1x snowboard, as a snowboard is a largest item within the order, the large item shipping rate is applied. All smaller items are therefore freight-free. We also cap the freight costs at $15/$20 (within NZ) and cover any additional costs internally.

As a general rule, orders will be dispatched from our Queenstown store, on the next business day after payment is received. Sometimes, we might achieve same day dispatch, however this is not guaranteed. All orders are freighted via standard security freight, utilising several different Third Party couriers, depending on product ordered and delivery address. Dispatch will usually take 1-3 business days from leaving our store. Freight for items/destinations outside of normal regions, should be negotiated prior to dispatch.
Click and Collect - With online purchases, the customer has an option to personally collect from our NZSHRED store at 19 Shotover Street, Queenstown. These purchases are freight & handling free-of-charge.
Please note all Paddlebaords and Surfboards are Click and Collect ONLY.
'The true pioneer of civilization is not the newspaper, not religion, not the railroad but Whiskey!' - Mark Twain From illicit distillation to worldwide export, whisky has a powerful and multi-faceted history. Writers including Robert Burns, James Joyce and Haruki Murakami have all mused on it, and there are strong opinions on every aspect, even down to how the word itself should be spelled. A staple of the classic cocktail, whisky is at the heart of diverse cultures around the globe, both in the established whisky traditions of Scotland and Ireland and in newer practices, such as the first Swedish malt whisky distillery, Mackmyra, opened in 1999. This book will take you to whisky landmarks all over the world, including the record-breaking Karuizawa distillery in Japan and Kavalan, the distillery that put Taiwanese whisky on the map. Get to grips with the four key ingredients - grain, wood, yeast and time - then learn how to taste whisky like a pro, from glassware to cocktails, and become a part of the international whisky family.
